About Us

Welcome to Waikanae Montessori Pre-School serving the Kapiti Coast for over 35 years.

We are one of the oldest established Montessori Pre-Schools in New Zealand.

We operate during the school terms and are open from 8.45am to 2.45pm Monday to Friday.

We are licensed for 40 children with five qualified teachers.

Our Office Manager is available during school time for any enquiries.

The emphasis in a Montessori classroom is the love of living, laughing, playing and learning.

Every child works at their own pace moving on when they are ready.

By giving the child control of their own work, Montessori makes learning an empowering experience that keeps the child motivated.

Montessori children love learning because they are stimulated, it is age appropriate and is designed to meet their needs.
